It’s Thursday, so we get the short schedule today. Brewers/Cubs wrap up a 4-game set while the Pirates try to solve the Dodgers. Meanwhile, the Cards prepare for their home opener – a third straight divisional series (with the Cubs). And the Reds take a day off after avoiding a sweep at the hands of the Cards.

My doubts about Gio Gonzalez are well-documented (not really, but they’re out there in the Cybersphere somewhere – just look), but I was going to write something equally snarks about Latos and my doubts about his abilities in Cincinnati now that he is no longer working out of the pitcher-friendly haven of San Diego. However, I just looked at his career home/away splits and, I gotta’ say, they’re eerily steady. So now I’m going to shut up and just keep an interested eye on him and see how this progresses.

- Jed Lowrie is expected off the DL for the Astros upcoming series against the Marlins.
- On the other hand, Lance Berkman will likely not play against the Cubs.
